It worked great for the first day but my Macow somehow spun it around and chewed it in half by day 2. 1” shorter in length maybe would have made it a little snugger.
I recently purchased this collar for my G Too. The collar is great. Well made, easy to put on and didn’t look flashy and bulky like some of the other colllars I researched. My Too is a mutilator, an this collar does the job. I highly recommend this collar to everyone who has a bird with a plucking issue.
I put it on my cockatoo and he started thrashing around and falling to the bottom his cage. He pulled off the rest of his feathers that he could reach in a frenzy, and scratched his eye somehow in the process. Within a few hours he tore it up while he was wearing it, so I just finally removed it so as to no longer trsumatize him. I thought he would get use to it but he did not.
I put the shorter stiff collar on Ruby because I felt sorry for her for having her neck stretched out like a giraffe. It seemed to interfere with feeding-it made filling her crop more difficult because the collar extended back to her crop. After putting the shorter stiff collar on her, it allowed her just enough room for her to bend her head and reach her left leg, which she chewed on (like in the past) until it was a bloody stub. No more trusting her or feeling sorry for her. I need a suit of armor that covers her body from the assault from her beak..
